Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods released its first teaser. The first film is an unexpected hit, making $366 million at the box office. The original Captain Marvel will return with Zachary Levi reprising the title role. All the kids and their heroic versions will return except for Michelle Borth, who plays Adult heroic Mary. Mary’s Kid actress Grace Caroline Currey, now 25 years old, made an adult version unnecessary. So Currey will now play the hero version of Mary too.
Kids grow fast. Asher Angel, who plays Shazam’s alter-ego Billy Batson is now 19! It makes me wonder if Zachary Levi will be retired too once Angel reaches Currey’s age.
At a certain point in history, Shazam was more popular than Superman, and he was known as Captain Marvel. Yes, Marvel has a Superhero with the same name, which got settled with a Lawsuit. Now he goes by the name he screams to transform.
Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods teaser
The release date of this movie is December 21, 2022, which is a long wait. While waiting for this sequel to be in theaters, Fans can watch the spin-off and prequel Black Adam first. Black Adam will be in theaters on October 21, 2022, because it was in production first.
Black Adam will be the origin story of the Shazam’s Nemesis, played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
The two rival characters will eventually clash in a showdown, but It is still unknown if the long-awaited fight will happen in Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods or the 3rd film. DCEU once promised that Shazam would have crossovers with other DCEU characters and actors. I feel that Mera and The Flash are out of contention for crossovers because of the controversies of the people who portray them. I would like Shazam to meet Superman and Batman, but Ben Affleck quits, and Henry Cavil’s future is uncertain.
